Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, on Saturday warned the All Progressives Congress, APC, against removing the Yobe State Governor, Mai Mala Buni as its National Chairman.
Fani-Kayode warned that removing Buni would be the biggest mistake of the APC.
Buni assumed leadership of APC after the oustering of ex-National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole.
Under the Buni-led Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, CECPC, APC had recieved several decampees from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, among whom are three state governors.
Despite this feat, some APC members are alleged to be plotting the governor’s removal.
Reacting, Fani-Kayode pointed out that Buni has done more for the APC than any previous National Chairman of the party.
In a series of tweets, the former minister wrote: “It amazes me that the Nat. Chairman of a pol. party that has attracted 3 Governors from the ranks of the opposition together with Senators, House of Rep members,BOT members, fmr. Ministers and other notables all in 1 year is being undermined by disgruntled elements in his party.
“The biggest mistake @OfficialAPCNg
can make is to get rid of Gov. Mala Mai Buni as its leader.
“I say this because he has done more for the credibility and strength of the ruling party than any National Chairman since its inception.
“Apart from being a formidable intellectual, a man of his word and an absolute gentleman, he is also a moderate, civilised, cerebral, fair-minded & focused individual for whom I have immense respect. I wish him well.”
